Man, this video is sad. Just sad. Sad. Sad.
As a man who proposed to a woman once, long ago, the anxiety involved is incredible. Even if you're pretty certain the woman's gonna say "yes", you still have to pull off the optics and make it a memorable occasion, the story of which will be passed down to future generations. It's probably one of the most difficult things a man has to plan for and execute in his entire life. To go through all of the logistics of setting up a great proposal, only to be told "Hell to the naw, Dontay!" in front of all you friends, family, and random congregants inside a sweaty, hoodrat-infested nightclub must be demoralizing. This fella's gonna need some counseling, pronto.
Clearly this guy messed up bigtime at some point, but it's clear he really loves the girl and wants to save her from a lifetime of spending weekends inside of sweaty, hoodrat-infested nightclubs. He wanted to turn her into an honest woman, and himself into an honest man.
But of course, life is not a fairy tale. I suppose this is what happens when you try to propose to a woman in a sweaty, hoodrat-infested nightclub.
Question: Fellas, how did you propose? Ladies, how were you proposed to? Does it really matter one way or another? Is this video sad or what?
 BTW, am I the only one who noticed that she didn't say "no" until after dude showed her to ring? Hmmmphhhfff.
